Lightning 0.1 Released - MozillaZine Talkback
There's been some activity on the calendar front in Mozilla. Hope this project turns out to be better than the existing calendar or sunbird extensions.
I got back home and downloaded Lightning. The installation was quick and painless.. my first view is that it looks pretty much like the old calendar, only tightly integrated with thunderbird.
Anyway, there is something that did catch my attention. The lightning app takes away a good chunk of my folder list's real-estate; and there's no way to disable it without uninstalling it.
For a person with an extremely long folder list, this is a bit of a problem. Hopefully, the next releases would have an option to turn off the calendar, or put it away in the background.
